Appropriate School Wear

School Uniform T-Shirts can be ordered through Kula Threads.
 
 
Appropriate student attire consists of a t-shirt emblazoned with the name of the school and logo accompanied with a skirt, shorts, or jeans/slacks. In general, the school attire should be clean, neat, and worn in an acceptable manner. Student’s appearance should not disrupt or detract from the educational environment of the school. The school administration has the right to designate which types of dress or appearance are not acceptable.
  • The school t-shirts are to be worn daily and for any excursions/field trips
  • The school t-shirt should not be altered in any way to modify the basic appearance of the shirt for the sake of current fashion trends. For example, shirts may not be worn inside out, have sleeves rolled up, be defaced, etc.
  • School t-shirts must be worn properly at all times while students are on school property or on excursions/field trips.
  • Zippered and button-up jackets, flannels, sweatshirts and sweaters may be worn over school shirts as long as the school shirt and logo can be easily identified at all times. Any other shirt must be worn underneath the school shirt (including long sleeved shirts)
  • Student t-shirts are color coded by grade levels: Hinahina (Ash) for Grade 6, `Ele`ele (Black) for Grade 7, and `Oma`oma`o (Green) for Grade 8.
  • Shorts must have at least a 5" inseam or longer. Skirts must be 4" from the top of the knee cap.
  • Hats and sunglasses may be worn outdoors only.
  • Shoes, sandals or similar footwear must be worn at all times for safety measures.
  • State law requires covered shoes for all students who attend Vocational Arts and P.E. classes.

Not Acceptable:
  • Modifications to the school shirt (cut, hemmed or rolled school shirt)
  • Midriff showing.
  • Form-fitted stretch pants like leggings or tights.
  • Jeans with holes or rips.
  • Pullover sweatshirts and long sleeve t-shirts worn on top, making it difficult to identify the school t-shirt
  • Pants with non-fitted waist.
  • Slogans, images or logos that reference illegal substances, tobacco, sex, violence, profanity, or gang themes on any part of a student’s attire.
  • Hat or sunglasses indoors.
